Numbness and tingling after acupuncture?
Occasionally in holistic therapies such as acupuncture, the body has a mechanism it initiates on the path to healing similar to a rubber band where it snaps back into its previous place, getting used to new positions. While this could be a possible explanation, I’ve personally never had a patient experience these sensations at this point in the treatment cycle… I’d recommend asking the acupuncturist about it, then please contact me for a specific consultation.

How long does it take for acupuncture to work for chronic back pain?
How long it would take to heal from chronic back pain depends on several factors, including on the age and level of health of the patient, as well as the skill level and consistency of care. Approximately 91% of my patients felt better immediately following the first treatment. With consistent care, the majority of them recovered within 1-6 months of weekly visits, depending on the variables mentioned above. Six months are the extreme cases and more elderly and less healthy patients. The mean amount of time is somewhere between 1-3 months in my practice. READ MORE

Does Chinese acupuncture raise collagen levels?
According to some recent research, Master Tung points out, “Zhi Wu, can be used after surgery for nonhealing scars or wounds, ear infection or inflammation and swollen knee.” In order to heal scars and wounds, collagen production would need to increase, so it is thus extrapolated that this can be the case in the use of this Master Tung Point. Acupuncture also has been proven to lower inflammation, helping many other inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis. https://www.sinimed.co.il/en/gynecology/masters-tung-zhi-wu-control-dirt-11-26-acupuncture-point/ READ MORE

Relief from sciatica?
About 80% of my patients come to see me with sciatica and lower back pain-related issues. About 91% of them find immediate relief after the first session. Duration of healing depends on many factors; your health, the condition of damage, and the practitioner’s skill set so there aren’t any hard and fast answers. Some take a session or two, while others come for 10-20 sessions before finding relief and or healing. The cost differs per region and practitioner. I’ve seen acupuncture sessions run anywhere from $60-120, depending on those factors. READ MORE

How long does it take to fix a bulging disc?
This is a difficult question to answer truthfully because there are so many variables at play in healing damage from a disc bulge. It depends on your health, the severity of the rupture, the skills of your practitioner, and your consistency with treatment, to name a few. I’ve had patients (about 91%) walk away from the first treatment with immediate relief, and then some who don’t see a change for a while. First off, check around your town who comes highly recommended for this sort of problem (maybe a group page on social media for your city you can ask for recommendations), take a consultation with the practitioner, as personal rapport and comfort do play a hand at results. Secondly, once you find a recommended practitioner with whom you feel a rapport, ensure you are as consistent with treatments as you can afford, try to do at least 4-10 treatments in a row (1-2 a week). All the best to your healing and health! For private consult, contact me at email@example.com READ MORE
Leg problem after an acupuncture session?
It sounds like your sciatic nerve was inflamed; it’s possible that a muscle spasm irritated the nerve, or that your hips became misaligned. I can recommend doing this stretch to relieve the tension and allow the position to return to normal: https://youtu.be/KYVqtcd7rW8 READ MORE
Burning post acupuncture treatment?
For this point on the side of the wrist, it is a very minuscule point, once which is between a tendon and a bone. It’s easy to feel nerve tension if the needle is just slightly close to it. If you felt burning and tingling, it was likely close to the nerve. In my practice, if the patient feels tingling or burning with this point, I will always readjust it. The sensation you're having the next day should go away. However, if it persists, it is important you let the practitioner know. READ MORE
